Ghana coach still reeling from setback to Essien

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac is still coming to terms with news that his star player Michael Essien will not be fit in time for the World Cup.

Injured Essien ruled out of Ghana's World Cup squad

Chelsea's Michael Essien has been ruled out of the World Cup finals after failing to recover from a knee injury, dealing a large blow to Ghana's hopes of getting past the group stage in South Africa.

Essien named in Ghana squad

Milovan Rajevac said it had not been easy to whittle down his list of Ghana players to 29 after naming his preliminary squad for this summer's World Cup.

Essien's World Cup hopes in jeopardy

Michael Essien's season for Chelsea is over and there are fears that his knee injury will also mean that the Ghana midfielder will not be able to play in the World Cup finals this summer.

Osibisa, Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

Although the general consensus is that Osibisa did World music before World music, this firecracker of a gig makes another, more important point. The band founded in London by Ghanaian multi-instrumentalist Teddy Osei some four decades ago was part of a rich crop of late 60s combos that collapsed the boundaries between African music, funk, rock and jazz, so inventively that the resulting "fusion" could sound remarkably different from one track to the next. Comprising horns, percussion, electric rhythm section and lead vocals supplied by various members, Osibisa have a rich, rotund groove that, when galvanised by Wendell Richardson's growling lead guitar, loosely recalls the Chicano blues of Santana, no more so than on "Sunshine Day", whose joyous chorus is taken up by the whole audience straight from the downbeat. Elsewhere, the lithe, fluid hi-life pulse of West Africa is liberally deployed to inject an entirely different energy and the skipping, vaulting rhythms that mark the middle of the set prove an invitation to dance that even those suffering from mid-winter lethargy can't resist.
